The New Abolition Depends On Each One Of Us 

Hungarian novelist Arthur Koestler was asked what is the most significant date in human history? He responded without hesitation – “August 6, 1945, when Hiroshima was destroyed by one atomic bomb.

Is it patriotism or historical blindness that allow writers of such columns to forget the indisputable fact Salvador Allende, a democratically elected President of Chile was surrounded by tanks near the Presidential residence, then overthrown by a bloody coup on 9/11/1973? ”9/11” in New York City [...]

“This Treaty Can – And Will – Change The World”

Every semi-literate person in the atomic age recalls Albert Einstein’s 1946 warning: “The unleashed power of the atom bomb has changed everything, except our modes of thinking, and thus we drift towards unparalleled catastrophes.” (The Quotable Einstein p. 175) All major news sources in the United States have seemingly done their utmost to prevent awareness [...]

How Would We Respond If 400 Military Bases Surrounded The USA?

A “Secret” On Abolishing Arms That Could Abort Earth’s Future

Which 21st century leader could openly support universal adoption of L-41 to abolish nuclear weapons? Would not the future of Earth, our “common home” and all living creatures be aborted in the event of another nuclear exchange? Who will be the potentate to call for use of nuclear weapons the third time?

When Will “Democracy Now” Be Silenced?

While living in Ossining, NY during the 1960’s, I listened to my friend Jim Beach from Tarrytown, NY give honest political reports about events each evening on Radio WHUD (Tarrytown is a city on the Hudson River 25 miles north of New York City).
